Microblading Artistry

Did you know that you can have beautiful brows everyday, without ever touching an eyebrow pencil again?

Properly proportioned eyebrows enhance your appearance by defining your eyes, framing your face, and giving you a more youthful, polished look. Now you too can achieve beautiful brows everyday with our Microblading Services at The Spa at Mystic.

Brow Mapping

Microblading Artistry is not one size fits all. Before your service begins, you will receive a brow-mapping customized to your face, bone structure, beginning and ending points of your brows, arch placement, and more to ensure symmetry and balance. 

What is Microblading?

Microblading, also known as Hair Stroke Brows, Powder Brows, Combination Brows, and Ombré Brows, is a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using, a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (we call it a microblade), to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin. 

Each new hair stroke that is drawn by a Microblading Artist is meant to simulate the client’s natural eyebrow hair and seamlessly blend it with the client’s existing brows to add color and fullness resulting in a very natural look. Our microblading process ensures that we design a customized shape, look, and feel that complements your face and your personality. With our experienced Artist at the helm, the results will be gorgeous yet undetectable!

The Process

Microblading is a very meticulous procedure and the first visit usually takes around 3 hours to complete. Because the technique and art of microblading are very delicate it requires two visits to ensure that all the strokes are evenly saturated with pigment. The second appointment is called a complementary touchup and takes place 4 to 6 weeks after the initial appointment after the pigments settled into the skin. In this complementary touchup, the artist makes any needed adjustments and ensures each hair-stroke has even color. 

Immediately following your Microblade procedure and over the next 10-14 days, the eyebrow color tends to lighten to a considerably softer tone.  

Trust the process and you’ll have beautiful brows created perfectly for you.

Aftercare

Microblading and Semi-permanent makeup post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Please read the following eyebrow aftercare carefully as they apply to all of our eyebrows treatments: Microblading, Powders and Combination Brows.

Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7 days after your procedure.

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the shower head or take a bath.

Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post procedure. Avoid picking or scratching as it can pull off scabs prematurely and cause patchy results or scarring. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

After 4 days, make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment with a cotton swab and clean hands. This can be done twice a day, at night time and morning time, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself. Please continue to apply the ointment for 7 days.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post procedure:

  • Increased sweating
  • Practicing sports
  • Swimming
  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
  • Sun tanning or salon tanning
  • Exposure to UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the treatment area
  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
  • Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab

What to expect...

The entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

The pigment will appear very unnatural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day.

Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than the original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, clients may have more fading in some areas which make the brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s the reason why most clients need a touchup after 6 weeks.

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.  The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure.

Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun.  Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. 

When using foundation, avoid the area of your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.

You can now enjoy your beautiful new eyebrows. You will simply love your new gorgeous fresh look!
